Despite the Biden administration weaponizing the Department of Justice (DOJ) against former President Donald Trump, having indicted the former president four times on bogus charges, the far-left New York Times says that if Trump reaches the White House in 2025, he will weaponize the government to go after his political opponents.
Although President Joe Biden is using the government to prosecute his leading political opponent, the leftwing publication claimed that if Trump is elected in 2024, the former president could use the government against Democrats.
The paper doesn’t seem to care about its double standard when it comes to reporting.

If you’re Biden, an ally of the New York Times, then you won’t be called out on your unconstitutional use of the government to go after your political opponents, but if you’re Trump, then the publication makes unsubstantiated, baseless claims that you’d alter the justice system against Democrats.
The New York Times article claims that “as he runs for president again facing four criminal prosecutions, Mr. Trump may seem more angry, desperate and dangerous to American-style democracy than in his first term. But the throughline that emerges is far more long-running: He has glorified political violence and spoken admiringly of autocrats for decades.”
The paper added, “More than anything else, Mr. Trump’s vow to use the Justice Department to wreak vengeance against his adversaries is a naked challenge to democratic values. Building on how he tried to get prosecutors to go after his enemies while in office, it would end the post-Watergate norm of investigative independence from White House political control.”
Instead of reporting on what’s true, the leftwing publication decides to go after Trump, whose continued presence in the 2024 presidential election is seen as a threat to Biden’s reelection.
The New York Times previously feared that Trump’s “draconian” anti-illegal immigration plan would be expanded if the former president wins the 2024 election, falsely asserting that his plans would restrict legal immigration as well.
Democrats have shown they have no agenda to run on. As a result, their only option to somehow succeed in the 2024 election is to portray Trump as an “authoritarian dictator.”
